Defiance: The Bielski Partisans by Nechama Tec
This book is a very interesting and comprehensive overview of the Bielskis and their efforts to save as many Jews as possible from the Holocaust. It has a very documentary feel as opposed to a novel style. It is a very human feel to it - showing both the heroic aspects of the Bielskis as well as their flaws. It is totally eye witness bases with very thorough notes to each chapter. I enjoyed the book very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars The God Delusion, Sept. 21 2010
The book is precisely what I expected it to be. It has concise, clear and intelligent arguments that rely on reason and not on emotional preconceived notions. The text is not overly philosophic and is therefore quite readable. In short, it is a powerful reasoned argument in favour of an atheistic point of view without being antagonistic.
